Meet Kelly Wilson
When I was in college, writing became more of a chore, a necessity to succeed in my classes. It wasn’t until I had my first child that I came back to my passion for writing. My son and I had almost lost our lives, and writing helped me work through the trauma associated with that experience.
Once I started writing again, I couldn’t stop. I often have to get out of bed in the middle of the night to write down a random thought that later turns into a story, or an outline for a book I’m thinking of finishing. I don’t sleep until whatever it is on my mind is written down.
I also found that I enjoyed writing children’s stories, and I became curious about how the publishing industry worked. Creating and submitting stories opened the gates in my brain to more stories, and now I find that I enjoy all different kinds of writing, including grants, children’s stories, magazine articles, poetry, and books of different genres.

For twenty years, author Kelly Wilson marched through the stages of grief in a straight line, convinced she would soon be done with it. She was totally deluded. Instead, her grief journey resembled a roller coaster. She needed to get to the end of it, and she had no sense of direction. Caskets From Costco is a funny book about grief that demonstrates the certainty of hope and healing in an uncertain and painful world.
